Whimsy Fox Mom

There is a new Β Whimsy Stamps release out today. Can you believe it’s July already?! I decided to dig out my pencils for this one and I also mirrored the stamp so the fox is facing right instead of left. This is my first attempt at fur using pencils, so although I’m not entirely happy with it I also know I should have semi-reasonable expectations, hahaha. I think it turned out alright, to be honest! The stamp is called Fox Mom.

I kept the card mostly simple, but added a cluster of die cuts from various paper scraps I had laying about. A few enamel dots and a sentiment also from Whimsy Stamps which I coloured digitally to match the scraps of paper.

Sommer vibes

This month’s challenge over at Copic Marker Norge doesn’t last for just this month, but throughout summer. Our theme had to be something summery for it, didn’t it? And it is, summer vibes.

I decided to colour up a stamp by The Paper Shelter as they have a great selection of summery ones. I was a little unsure of how I wanted to colour up the background and contemplated both a park look as well as a cityscape, but on the day I coloured it up we had a bright blue cloudless sky all day, so that’s what I went for in the end.

To make the card I used MFT Stamps rectangle dies to cut the panel and put it on top of some Maja Design paper. A couple of butterflies made with Rayher dies in a matching colour, some enamel dots to match the handbag and an embossed sentiment by Mathia Design (Hobbykunst) were all the things I needed to complete my card.

Whimsy penguin with candy cane

Pencil colouring is fun! My next pencil colouring will actually be my 10th and yesterday it was a month since I first tried coloured pencils. Not many of them have made it onto cards though, only 3 of them, of which one of them have made it onto the blog so far. I find it quite different to make cards with craft as the base colour instead of white, but I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it soon!

This time I’ve made a Christmas card using a penguin with candy cane by Whimsy Stamps, it’s in the Crissy Armstrong collection. Isn’t he adorable? As I wrote in the first paragraph, I haven’t made many cards using my pencil colourings, so for this one I took a page out of Elin‘s book. She’s the only one I know who makes clusters of paper scraps like this and I like it, so I thought I’d try it myself. I think it works well for my card!

I use prisma color premier pencils.

Baby girl christening card

It’s time for my inspirational card for this month’s Copic Marker Norge challenge. Our theme this month is special occasions focusing on christenings, confirmations and weddings. I opted for a digital stamp by Mo’s Digital Pencil and made a christening card for a baby girl. I’m not a massive fan of cards with pink upon pink so I opted for a few different colours in the papirs and on the embellishments.

The papers I’ve used are from Maja Design and Papirdesign, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and other bits from my stash.

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, E41, E42, E43, E44, RV00, RV02, RV17, RV32, RV34

Mmmm Strawberries!

Our theme this month, at Copic Marker Norge, is something edible. Initially I was going to use a stamp with donuts, but I got a Power Poppy gift certificate for my birthday a few days ago and I simply had to colour up this stamp! Don’t the strawberries look yummy?! I cannot wait for summer and being able to pick some in mum’s garden! Strawberries are delicious!

Copics used: R22, R24, R27, R59, R89, G21, G24, G40, N1, N3, Y11, Y13, Y38, YG01, YG17, YG23, YG97
